Fresh Apple Cake

by GettingFreedom on January 24, 2011

I’ve been able to score loads of apples on clearance the last few trips to the grocery store.  When I find them for 20¢ a pound, it’s hard to pass them by!  While my family will gobble up any fresh fruit I bring home, there is only so much they can eat before it goes to waste. Which isn’t an option!

My mother-in-law made us this cake while we were deep in the throws of Project Major Home Addition, and it instantly came to mind.  It’s moist and incredibly flavorful-so you only need a small bit to put your sweet tooth at ease.
